 Hi
 
 I  am  using  a  CFL  light  in  my  tank  that  has  a  hood.  How  do  i  ensure  that  high  humidity  in  the  tank  does  not  effect  the  lighting  fixtures  such  as  sockets  etc.  There  is  a  strong  danger  of  electrical  shortcircuit  when  using  lights  in  a  hooded  tank.
 
 Are  there  any  CFL  lighting  arrangement  that  are  dampproof  and  specially  designed  for  aquarium  use.  
 
 Please  guide.

 Hi
 
 You  will  get  plastic  sockets  for  bulbs  and  other  plastic  electrical  fittings.  They  will  be  relatively  safe  from  the  high  humidity.  Some  power  compacts  come  with  plastic  fittings  and  are  enclosed.  You  will  also  get  covered  compact  flourescent  lamps.  
 
 Hitachi,  Boyu  etc  have  lamps  specifically  for  aquarium  use,  but  I  haven't  yet  seen  a  CFL.
 
 It's  usually  salt  water  that  corrodes  metallic  structures  in  the  hood  and  I  am  assuming  that  you  are  having  a  freshwater  tank.
 
 Regards,
 
 Abhishek
